Endometrial adenocarcinoma and mucometra (case report)
Reduced appetite, chronic abdominal enlargement and greenish vaginal discharge in a dog that has received depot gestagens over years. A pyometra, of course? Also other differentials need to be considered, as shown in this very interesting case report from Spain.

A 6-year-old female Alaska Malamute dog was presented for evaluation of abdominal enlargement referred by a local veterinarian.

On the history, the owner complained of chronic abdominal enlargement initiated more than 4 months ago, reduced appetite, occasional vomiting and general dullness. He also complained of greenish mucous intermittent vaginal discharge starting 10 days ago.

The bitch was chronically treated with medroxiprogesterone acetate.

A laparatomy was performed and fluid in the abdomen was found and aspirated during the surgery.

Also a very fluid-filled distended uterus and a mass in the distal part of the left uterine horn were found. The mass was encapsulated by the omentum, but areas of necrosis and calcification were identified.

Histopathological diagnosis was endometrial adenocarcinoma.

Storage temperatures and container types and the urine protein : creatinine ratios
Preanalytic protein adsorption to polymer and glass container surfaces may decrease urine protein concentration measurements and urine protein: creatinine ratios (UPC). Does urine stored in PC or glass containers have lower UPC than urine stored in HP containers? The specific objective was to determine whether clinically relevant differences in UPC would be detected after storage in glass, PC, or HP containers using common storage times and temperatures. Twelve client‐owned dogs with proteinuria helped to answer these important questions.
